Cricket Explained

Back in high school days (2001),being captain of the cricket team I was awarded a poster on my team's victory. This is what it said:

CRICKET EXPLAINED

You have two sides one out in the field and one in .

Each man that's in the side that's in goes out and when he's out he comes in and the next man goes in until he's out .

When they are all out the side that's out comes in and the side that's been in goes out and tries to get those coming in out .

Sometimes you get men still in and not out .

When both sides have been in and out including the not outs , THAT'S THE END OF THE GAME !

HOWZAT !!!!!

i always thought that cricket was played with enthusiasm, passion and joy :p

imran said...

by seeing aussies u can say that.
But the asian tems dont do that.

But the thing is that having all the thing u have mentioned above you still need a bat and a ball and a few stumps for playing cricket really!!

yar saira this reminded me of our cricket matches in school...we used to have small matches in 40 minute classes...it used to be such fun!
remember once we were playing...i was batting and anam was bowling...i hit the ball straight but it was airborne and i didn't know how anam reacted so fast! one instant she was standing delivering the ball and the next instant she was lying on the ground..sideways...completely still...at first i didn't get what had happened...and then it dawned on me----i'd been caught n bowled!
i can still replay that entire scene! it was too funny!:)

imran said...

but bat and a ball is a must.

:D:D:D:D:D:D
this reminded me of the football episode..one minute we are kicking the ball up high, the other minute the balls hits a girl, and she is flat on the ground, the third minute we are infront of the mam shahids office being yelled at, the fourth minute ayesha and amina are Ballerina dancing infront of the headmistress office, the fifth minute we are being yelled at again, the sixth minute we are getting grounded for lunch breaks
and ultimately we are having the times of our lives during detention :D:D:D

The best thing about watching children play cricket is that they have a lot more control over their emotions. There's no sledging, pointing, staring and pelvic thrusting.
